Stories of Otherness

Tindall Foundation ‘Stories of Otherness’ Podcasts is a 4 part series. These first hand accounts are here to educate and help people to speak up. We want to debunk some of the common myths around migration today, focus on people as individuals, become aware of our own unconscious biases and open up to the idea of broadening social circles and understanding multidimensional and intersectional identities.The episodes are true stories that cover some serious topics that could be upsetting to some audiences
